VBA/Word: Copy as plain text
Posted on 2001-06-09
When using MS Office 2000, the copy function normally returns RTF/HTML-results as default. This is very unpractical when I copy text from Word and paste it into eg. Outlook Express or Excel.
My normal work-around is to start Notepad, paste the clipboard there, and then copy it again. Another alternative (when the text is to be pasted into Office) is the Paste Special-function (paste as plain text).
I would like to copy content as plain text with an easy shortcut. I could not find any suitable built-in functions in Word, but I think VBA could be a solution.
Does anybody know a way to do this with VBA? (Eg. first copy, and then convert the clipboard to plain text)
Thanks a lot,
